Catalyst Recognizes Initiatives at Campbell Soup Company, Deloitte, Royal Bank of Canada, and Telstra with the 2010 Catalyst Award

 

NEW YORK (January 21, 2010) — Catalyst announces that initiatives from Campbell Soup Company, Deloitte LLP, Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), and Telstra Corporation Limited are the recipients of the 2010 Catalyst Award, the annual award that honors exceptional initiatives from companies and firms that support and advance women in business. This year’s Award winners, representing a wide range of industries, cultures, and approaches, demonstrate the strong business case supporting women’s advancement to leadership.

Women @ Work

Women will succeed in business without special treatment, but organizations that create women-friendly environments are often more collaborative, flexible and adaptive to today’s relationship-oriented, network-run marketplace. They also make more money. A October 2007 Catalyst report found that Fortune 500 companies with more women on their boards outperformed those with the least by 53 percent. The organizations featured here have made engaging the female demographic a priority.

Accenture

Accenture, a global management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company, operates a strong diversity and inclusion program and supports the advancement of women throughout its many locations.
